A still increasing interest in aesthetics and also diversity and complexity of aesthetic studies can be noticed over the last couple of decades. The volume title, Transacting Aesthetics, emphasizes something active, dynamic, interactive, operative, participative, but also something what is malleable or in action, in progress, undergoing operations and whose boundaries cannot be circumscribed. Emergence of new scientific tools and methodologies, new artistic and aesthetic phenomena and/or new sources of aesthetic reflection make aesthetics an interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary sphere, wherein disciplinary convergences are privileged; reshaping the domain into a field being subjected to permanent transacting.

The monograph entitled “Performing Cultures” is a part of proceedings of 19th International Congress of Aesthetics which was held in Cracow, Poland in July of 2013. The meeting’s theme, “Aesthetics in Action”, provoked a fruitful debate on practical aspects of the discipline, which allowed researchers coming from different countries and cultural backgrounds to indicate and analyze areas where aesthetics applies to daily life actions. The volume contains analyses of aesthetic practices at their roots, coming from different cultural backgrounds. It covers: everyday aesthetics and interculture studies, architecture and urban studies, body and self fashioning researches as well as media and technological researches.

Content

Selection of papers from the 19th International Congress of Aesthetics in Cracow 2013, "Aesthetics in Action". The title of the monograph, Practising Aesthetics, refers to the various senses of the term practice, its keynote being the paraphrase of the topic of the 19th Congress: Art in Action. In most general terms, its subject matter explores the sphere of the cooperation between aesthetic thought and artistic practice, their interconnections and mutual inspirations. The term practising is intentionally used in the title to point to various projects whose different ways of approaching aesthetic reflection are evident in the way they develop their arguments, their selection of issues to be examined as well as examples from art chosen to illustrate those issues.

Jos de Mul and Renée van de Vall (eds.) Gimme Shelter: Global Discourses in Aesthetics. Proceedings of an international symposium, organized by the Dutch Aesthetic Federation and the International Association of Aesthetics. Amsterdam, October 8-10, 2009.

Gimme Shelter. Global discourses in aesthetics contains a series of reflections on the impact of globalization on the arts and the aesthetic reflection on the arts. The authors – fifteen distinguished  aestheticians from all over the world -   discuss a variety of aesthetic questions brought forth by the aforementioned process of globalization. How do artistic practices and aesthetic experiences change in response to these developments? How should we articulate these changes on the theoretical level? When reflections on the significance of art and aesthetic experiences can no longer pretend to be universal, is it still possible to lay claim to  a wider validity than merely that of one’s own particular culture? What type of vocabulary allows for mutual – dialogical or even polylogical – exchanges and understandings when different traditions meet, without obliterating local differences? Is there a possibility for a creative re-description of globalization? And is there a meaning of ‘the global’ that cannot be reduced to universalism and unification? Can we seek shelter in a legitimate way?
